New research shows fluoride may lower IQ
Next, we're going to learn that water is bad for you.
Harvard researchers are now saying that fluoride appears to lower IQ. Specifically, they refer to neurobehavioral development (hence kids, not adults).
The president of the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF) has gone so far as to say that we should stop artificial fluoridation everywhere.
My understanding is that they're especially concerned for babies in-utero, as fluoride crosses the placenta very easily and is especially toxic to the developing brains of babies.
The article says:
"Fluoride accumulates in the body making even low doses harmful to babies, the thyroid gland, kidney patients, and heavy water drinkers. Experts even have concerns about the effect of fluoridation to the point where New York City Legislation is pending to stop fluoridation, while many other communities have already stopped."
I didn't realize communities had stopped fluoridating their water supplies!
